I decided to go ahead & pay this one off a week early. I went to book Palo & absolutely every time for brunch & dinner was available. I picked the brunch time, but decided to hold off on dinner. We aren't sure if we want to do it or not & will just wait until on the ship. It doesn't look like there will be any problem getting a reservation.

Now, I am just curious how cheap of an upgrade I will be able to buy at port.

Haven't seen much talk about any of the 4 night Galveston sailings
Our 4 night February 5th is very talkative...on Facebook.

We are trying to do the April 16 sailing, which means pulling kids out of school. It's super affordable, though, so we're willing to do it. If there were sailings in the summer, I would've looked into that. Then my oldest would be able to join us. She's a freshman in college, so she can't miss school.
We will be with you!! It is our first cruise EVER and we are really excited. We booked because the prices seemed really great on it but have learned that it isn't the easiest port to get 6 people down to from Maine!!! Our kids are on break that week so it worked out perfect for us. Looking forward to having a great sailing with you!

She is a totally different person now, although on numerous medications and still has to have her annual biopsy, be careful around sick people since her immune system is lower, etc. She is almost 11 now, so her transplant was almost 6 years ago.
I just now saw your post! I am glad your niece is doing well post transplant. So far Nathan has stayed stable on meds but with this disease that could change any time. He has DCM and it doesn't seem to have as high of a transplant rate as RCM.


This cruise is when much of Oklahoma has spring break so I thought it would be more crowded. I read somewhere that the Galveston cruises are primarily Texans. Aim a Disney TA (I just do it to help my friends book Disney vacations and share my love of Disney- lol) and I have convinced 4 other families to take this cruise. Some are just booking now and all categories are still available. I would love a non crowded cruise! We've only been during summer or NYE.

Quick question for those that have been able to book their excursions and such on the 4 nighter. Is there a Palo Brunch available to book?

Also, from my prior experience with Palo's when we sailed on the wonder we went in a second evening because I wanted to try an ice wine they carried. Anyway while we were sitting at the bar they asked us if we wanted a table that night and come back again.

I would really love to do the brunch but I am greedy and want the dinner too.

You can book both. Even on the 4 night.
